I am trying to find the baptism /parents of William Bunting, shoemaker of Uttoxeter who died aged 78 in 1882.
I do not think he is the son of Joseph & Mary baptised on 18 May 1800 as his death on June 20th 1800 is recorded on the IGI. I believe he was actually born circa 1803/4 as he was aged 38 in 1841, 47 in 1851, 57 in 1861, 67 in 1871. William
His birthplace is always given as Uttoxeter. I do not know when the family became Methodists but there was a strong commitment to the church as one of his sons became a minister and both daughters married ministers. I suspect his baptism is probably to be found in Methodist church records.
